Today, an unexpected surprise. A text from my mom, asking me if I had dinner planned. She knows I usually have dinner planned, sometimes in the crock pot, anything to make the dreaded witching hour after work of being hungry and tired manageable!
I was planning on a 'dump' chili, as in, I open a bunch of cans, dump them in a pot, and simmer it for 30 minutes. So, no plans that couldn't be postponed!
And that is how a huge casserole found it's way to my oven.....
What a wonderful thing, to live close enough to Mom that a surprise dinner is an event that totally happens! And to have a son who can drive over to pick it up, and a daughter who can come home from play practice and put it in the oven!
